LATEST NEWS ABOUT KARUNA
Balkrishna Magnalal - the founder of Karuna Retreat Center - has passed away on the 1st of January 2022. All who wish to pass by Karuna to pay their homage are welcome.
Karuna Retreat Center is currently closed and will slowly reopen in February for individual retreats only.
We would like to share with you all some new pictures of Karuna Retreat Center. After the wildfires, that destroyed all the forest and infrastructure at Center, we have been able to re-build the meditation hall, the dinning hall, the kitchen and 10 new rooms.
All the accomplished work was only possible due to the hard work, relentless commitment and the love of many friends from all over the world. Thank you to every single person who participated in this project, in one way or another!
We will re-open in May for individual and groups retreats. Scrool down for new pics and further down for old pics.
Our heart and soul is with all those who suffer and who were affected by the wildfires in the Algarve. Karuna Retreat Center was hit by the fires on the night of the 5th August and burned to ashes. All its friends are committed to rebuild this Center so that we can continue having a place for those who wish to look within. ― Karuna Retreat Center
